I worked at The Advisory Board Company full-time (More than a year)

Pros

-Great, young, vibrant culture
-Extraordinary internal career opportunities
-Opportunity for flex roles and travel

Cons

-High turnover, "revolving-door" attitude for entry level positions
-Very low salaries compared to industry averages
-Support departments aren't adequately managed and given proper attention/directives, firm focus is strictly on revenue making teams

Advice to Management

Focus on skill development. Train middle managers in professional management skills, as unqualified low-level positions are promoted in to manager roles prematurely. Offer competitive salary to attract and keep talent.

    You have to learn on the job, and success can be hit or miss depending on how strong your manager is, the overall health of your particular department, and how client pools are assigned.
